2022 Festival Plate Tips

There have been a variety of different Cheltenham trainers who have triumphed in the Festival Plate over the past few years and it’s clear that this handicap betting race is difficult to predict. Emmet Mullins saddled The Shunter to success last season at the Cheltenham Festival, with the eight-year-old landing the spoils off a relatively low weight of 10-5.

However, two of the previous three winners when it came to the Festival Plate betting odds were off a higher weight of 11-04, with The Storyteller and Simply the Betts managing to get a victory at the Cheltenham Festival. Our Cheltenham betting tips will hopefully give you an insight into the victorious connections.

Imperial Alcazar and Saint Sam Among Betting Favourites

Imperial Alcazar was distinctly underwhelming in the Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival, with the horse being well-fancied at betting odds of 11/2 although there have been more encouraging performances since that fateful day. Paddy Brennan gave the horse a decent spin in a festive race at Chepstow.

The same horse was then sent off at 9/1 by the leading horse racing betting sites in the Timeform Novices' Handicap Chase on 29 January before claming a victory at Cheltenham Racecourse and this is likely to be among the Cheltenham tips when it comes to many of the leading contenders.

Saint Sam could well go off betting favourite for the 2022 Festival Plate, with the five-year-old having enjoyed a promising career thus far. The runner ran pretty well at the Dublin Festival when finishing third in the Patrick Ward & Co Solicitors Irish Arkle Novice Chase and that was behind Blue Lord and Riviere D’etel who will also line up in one of the 2022 Cheltenham Festival races.

Torn and Frayed could be the Cheltenham market mover, with the eight-year-old saddled by the experienced Nigel Twiston-Davies. A victory in the Paddy Power Cheltenham Countdown Podcast Handicap Chase at the end of January, with this being a six-length victory which has really laid down a market for this race.



The Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase takes place towards the end of Day Three when it comes to the Cheltenham Festival, with the runners and riders only confirmed close to the start of the race.

Siruh Du Lac was the winner of the 2019 race for trainer Nick Williams, with female jockey Lizzie Kelly riding the six-year-old to glory, while Road to Respect was another six-year-old who triumphed in 2017.

One of the more likely runners in the Brown Advisory is Ben Dundee who ran very well at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival. The eight-year-old finished third in the Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase at odds of 33/1, with Gordon Elliott likely to send his charge into the race.

The fact that Ben Dundee was trading at 33/1 meant that he outran his particular odds, with the horse having run well at Navan and Leopardstown this season. We know that the charge can adapt to the conditions at Cheltenham and the horse could open as favourite.

Riders Onthe Storm ran in the same race at the Festival in 2019, although the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained horse fell in the Close Brothers race and will return to the racecourse hoping to stay on his feet this time.

The horse has scored two victories this season, with the seven-year-old winning the Virgin Bet Handicap Chase at Aintree when trading as the 4/1 co-favourite, while this was followed up by a victory in the Betfair Exchange Graduation Chase.

Spiritofthegames is certainly a horse that knows his way around Cheltenham racecourse, with the eight-year-old having finished second at Prestbury Park in December and January.

The Dan Skelton-trained horse ran into second in a Gold Cup Handicap Chase despite trading at 40/1, with the runner coming off second best to Warthog in the run-in, while it was another second place finish in a Grade 3 race on 25 January and the horse has to be considered again.
